Since the league-wide WNBA break for the Olympics ended last week, the basketball action has been off the wall – or, for Minnesota Lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson, off the boards, at least. Brunson set a WNBA record for offensive rebounds last night at the Target Center at the 6:26 mark of the first quarter in an eventual 92-80 victory over the Seattle Storm, according to WNBA.com. She passed the record of 1,062 offensive rebounds previously set by power forward/center Taj McWilliams-Franklin in 2012.

Interestingly, Brunson and McWilliams-Franklin set the record for offensive rebounds both in the month of August and as members of the Lynx. McWilliams-Franklin played the final two seasons of her career for the Lynx as Brunson’s teammate in 2011 and 2012. The team appeared in back-to-back Finals series during McWilliams-Franklin’s tenure. In 2013, Brunson also broke McWilliams-Franklin’s record for most games played in the finals with 19, according to the Star Tribune.

Los Angeles Sparks center Lisa Leslie, who played in 12 seasons from 1997 to 2009, holds the record for total rebounds with 3,307. Brunson’s career mark in total rebounds stands at 2,940 At her current career pace, Brunson, now in her 13th year, would need at least another season and a half to pass Leslie’s all-time rebounding record.

Brunson could add to her career rebounding and Finals game played records this post-season. The Lynx are set in a playoff berth with seven games remaining in the regular season.
